    Probably not, but that would be my gut reaction to a perceived assault.....
    I see no valid reason for a gay man to 'hit' on a man he knows is straight, and expect no consequences......
    Would my reaction be considered simple assault, or would it be a hate crime?....
    There will be a need to draw up acceptable lines of conduct for the individuals on both sides of this issue.....
    I apologize if I offended anyone with my gut reaction to an unwelcomed advance......

    You know, I get hit on by women and it just serves as a compliment to me. I look at it like an affirmation that I present an attractive form to either of the sexes and I should be proud of that. There is no reason to become offended over unsolicited advances until they cross the line to unwelcome advances.

    Gays already live in the dorms with all the other same-gender soldiers today without problems. Claiming co-habitation would be an issue is absurd, as they are co-habitating as we speak and it works perfectly.

    It would create a negative impact the same way that forcing males and females to live together would create a negative impact on morale and discipline.

    It's what I've been saying all along and now the military is echoing the same thing. Gee!

    They live together unknowingly. When everything is out in the open, sexual harrassment cases will go through the roof; taking time away from training to deal with a buncha BS.

    Eurotrash opinions about the military especially by those who have not served in their own nation's military are totally irrelevant as to what what views and attitudes belong in another country's military. I realize that in Europe you people do not believe in free speech have enacted though crime laws under the guise of hate speech, but the US we actually value free speech regardless if we like or hate what someone else says.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    No, he shouldn't be cashiered from the service. He is the commandant of The Marine Corps. The Corps's combat readiness is his number one concern; that is his job, not satisfying your political agenda.

    They should just put the homophobic bigot out of the military. it is not gays that create a problem it is intense bigotry. This guy is a horses ass.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.
